Let there Be 6...




" I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made ; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well... " Psalm 139 :14



On Valentines Day I got an unexpected surprise. We were shocked, happy, scared and in complete disbelief. God answers prayers. Even in ways we wouldn't expect.




" He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord..." Psalm 112:7

February 25th, after days of blood work and number counts, the time came for a sonogram. At exactly 6 weeks I got to see a heartbeat. A strong beautiful, rhythmic heartbeat.





" He will cover you with His feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart." Psalm 91:4

I am exactly 8 weeks and 2 days along. I wait in faith that God did not give me this baby in vain. I have kept it a secret for too long. Its time I come out and share this journey with all of you... no matter what the future holds. Life is not always perfect. Its filled with hurt. Last night a friend told me that sometimes the devil wants us to remain quiet. Being isolated and oppressed makes him dance with glee... But its times like this that believers need to stand together.

So I ask for your prayers for my family and we tread on this very unexpected journey. We have no control. It lies all in our Saviors hands. Sometimes thats the hardest.... letting go. Not knowing and having to go with the flow...

Right now I will celebrate because I AM having a baby. A baby thats already anticipated and dreamed about. A baby that is so loved....
